Google set to dominate Apple, Amazon and Samsung in the race for the best voice assistant. We are becoming accustomed to talking to our computer voice assistants. I now ask Alexa for the time in the middle of the night. I say "OK Google" many times during the day and at my desk to get information, and to check my calendar, or send texts or emails from the car. It is becoming clear, however, that Google Assistant has the deepest knowledge, and is the most conversational of all of them. Many of us aren't using them yet; but, I promise you that the HAL 9000 isn't many years away. Like Netflix, or other services, voice assistant computers will reach a tipping point, and will continue to become easier to use, as well as more ubiquitous. May we all live long and prosper.
